Indiana-based Christian metalcore band HASTE THE DAY will release its new album, "Attack Of The Wolf King", on June 29 via Solid State Records.
"Travesty", one of several stand-out tracks from the CD, is available to purchase today on iTunes, and can also be streamed via the band's MySpace page.
According to a press release, "Attack Of The Wolf King" "proves to be the most dynamic, ferocious and art-minded album of the band's career — an impressive feat for an act that is releasing its fifth full length and has compiled more than a quarter-million in album sales."
Recorded in Richmond with veteran producer Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, OH SLEEPER), "Attack Of The Wolf King" is the first outing for the current incarnation of HASTE THE DAY, whose new members brought equally fresh elements to the writing process, adding new fuel to the tried-and-true metalcore machine of singer Stephen Keech and bassist Michael Murphy.
While HASTE THE DAY is already among the metalcore elite, "Wolf King" sees the band reaching frenzied new heights for what, nine years into their career, could be its career-defining album.
"I think that 'Attack Of The Wolf King' has taken the musical elements of HASTE THE DAY — the breakdowns, the melodies, and the mood — and turned it up ten notches," says Murphy. "Fans of the old HASTE THE DAY and the new HASTE THE DAY will be both be in love with this album. It has the raw aggression of 'Burning Bridges', the catchy choruses of 'When Everything Falls', the energy of 'Pressure The Hinges', and the mood and feeling of 'Dreamer'. Get ready for your new favorite HASTE THE DAY album!"
HASTE THE DAY has already announced a summer headlining tour in support of the album, from June 4 to July 2, and will follow that up with a Warped Tour run from July 20 to August 15.
